Pediatric Advanced Care Team (PACT)

Pediatric Palliative Care Research

With funding from the National Institute of Nursing Research at the National Institutes of Health, the Agency for Healthcare Research and Quality, and other sources, we conduct studies that focus on how hospitals can better support families facing difficult decisions about a child's care, and how regional systems of care could be better organized to provide palliative support care services to children and their families.

We strive to determine what forms of medical interventions or modes of assistance are most helpful for children with life-threatening diseases and their families, and what types of policies best serve their needs.
